For the past three years, FLY Racing and Western Power Sports have held Summer Camp for media types from all over the off-road world to show off their new wares; even the trade media was invited to take part, which is a rarity for these kinds of launches. Having ridden mostly off-road on four-wheels lately, riding a motocross track on two-wheels was going to be a challenge. However, for the sake of our readers, we donned the new gear and set out to assess FLY’s 2020 moto line. Our approach was, admittedly, a little different than the expert riders and pros who were also out on the track testing.
FLY Racing’s pro riders Weston Peick, who is still recovering from a devastating crash last year, and former supercross rider and brand ambassador Damon Bradshaw, showed up to put their bikes – and gear – through the paces. The FLY team set up camp on a brand-new track not far outside the WPS Headquarters in Boise, ID, for 20 journalists and a handful of WPS sales reps, brand managers and marketing folks. There was a whole fleet of KTMs and Husqvarna’s, courtesy of local Boise dealer Carl’s Cycle Sales, waiting for us.
